    Hello, my name is Lidya Hagos and I am un undergraduate pharmacist, me and my mentor are trying to conduct a study concerning the causation of hyperkalemia by kanamycin. This is very important as we have seen that kanamycin does seem to cause hyperkalemia but there is no literature that says that kanamycin causes hyperkalemia, only hypokalemia so i would like to join this group to be able to communicate with you and to better understand the situation so that we can all better understand how and why this is happening and hope to come to good conclusion so that the manufacturers of kanamycin may also be aware of this.

    Took Dapsone for about a month and experienced higher and higher blood potassium levels until the level spiked to almost 7. Dapsone was immediately stopped and I was placed on Kayexalate which caused other problems that needed to be addressed immediately. At this point I am not on Dapsone and really do not want to return to it.
